Addiction 2022.1

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Something I noticed, I felt like I was shifting my hips alot while pedaling, vs what he looked like. Not sure if that’s because of how much effort I was putting into it or the fatigue or a fit issue.
Shifting as in moving around the saddle trying to get in the right position? Or shifting as in rocking?

Yep. Full field pic. They do it this way (I'm certain you know this, but others may not) because it's inevitable that some honyocker tries to win a 24 hour race in the first minute. The chatter is: It's going to be cold and wet.

As I sat at my computer, analyzing sequencing data using a program somebody else wrote, using command line, trying to remember the commands, the defaults, and the arguments, and type them in correctly, it occurred to me that 40 years ago, I arrived in California and started working for Genentech - analyzing sequencing data using a program somebody else wrote, using command line, trying to remember the commands, the defaults, and the arguments.

Yeah, 24 year old me could not have dreamed of doing what 64 year old me can do.

Shifting around is a sign of uncomfortability, but that doesnt mean your fit is bad or anything is wrong. When we go all out or even beyond, its normal to shift forward. You are familiar with the term , "on the rivet"?
I know when I am riding out of my class I have felt that way, not like something is wrong but more like something isn't right. I think it's just how our physicality *****es about being asked to do something that hard for an extended length of time. As far as feeling sick, you are doing it correct. I get that quite often under hard efforts. I have actually thrown up twice that I can recall on the bike because of it. I had just eaten and the ride leader decided it was breakaway time. I felt better afterwards, but never caught back up.

When I was a runner, I trained at what I called the JAV threshold- just about vomiting. I would puke at the end of races all of the time.

Rocking side to side. It wasn’t anything super dramatic but it was enough for me to notice. I would try and stop and just focus on trying to put as much power as I could with just my legs but I think the effort was just too great.

Never heard of “on the rivet”. As well as rocking, I did slide pretty far forward. I had a death grip on my hoods, and my back was cramping by mile 28, which has never happened on the madone.

Side-to-side can be a sign of your saddle height being off, but it could also be that you were really exerting yourself. I usually notice when someone doesn't have "quiet hips," and it's not something that stuck out when riding together.

Take a look at a Brooks saddle,or any old timey type saddle,there is a big fat brass rivet on the tip of the nose. When we push hard we end up forward on the saddle. Thus, on the rivet. My theory is that muscles are made to contract , any and all looseness in any joint disappears under all that contracting.and our feet come up to maximize stability for the effort. Our arms tighten and we begin to pull on the bars. I think we just slide forward to compensate naturally for this temporary change in our fit and to focus our energy better. If you are rocking a lot, I would lower your saddle 1/8th inch and try it again, see if it gets any better. You can always move it back if it doesn’t help.

You were too focused on the Wide Load sticker that was missing.

Throat infection. This used to be an annual event, but hasn't occurred for the last several years. It's really great that it waited until I was back home. That, and the slight sinus condition, are the only symptoms. I actually feel somewhat better today, after a semi-rough night. Another few days and all will be well.
The back, however, feels like new.
